Math gaming is an important educational tool. UNESCO reports that six out of 10 children, over 617 million children and adolescents worldwide, are not learning the minimum skills required to pass basic reading and math tests. These numbers represent over 387 million primary school children and 230 million adolescents, severely hampering global efforts to meet educational target goals set by the U.N.'s Sustainable Developmental Goals (SDG). Furthermore, U.S. statistics are just as discouraging, with students ranking 31st in math literacy out of 79 countries tested. These low numbers are thought to be attributed to heavy U.S. emphasis on dry formula education, rather than allowing students to use creative and fun gaming approaches to math education. MathNook's vast library of math games and tutorials can help.
